Beroide is a village in the municipality of Spoleto, near Perugia, situated on a plain 223 meters above sea level.
According to Istat census data of 2001, the inhabitants are 267.
The most important fortified villa of Spoleto, surrounded by walls and retains its two doors. Stands the belfry of the parish church of San Michele, the mighty tower polygon is used, with unusual architectural solution, and at the same time as the apse of the Romanesque church tower, and inside it has valuable frescoes, well worth a visit.
The front of the church has Gothic style and gives a fair idea of the ancient prestige of the country.
Within the trend is still visible row of houses.
We should also mention the church of S. Antonio Abate, which has a cycle of frescoes in the apse on the life of the saint with captions in the vernacular. Restored in the roof at the expense of the owners of surrounding lands, and the small but precious little church reveals severe cracks which threaten its integrity.
The earliest records date back to 1241, is in fact one of the places subject to the City of Spoleto in the list drawn up by Frederick II and was subsequently confirmed by Cardinal Capocci in 1247.
In 1275 the settlement was fortified and became a castle, then reduced back to a fortified house and open it again in 1378.
It is mentioned in the chronicles of the local opposition that captained against Spoleto, along with the castles of the plan, submitting the first to Ladislas of Naples and then to the Varano of Camerino.
The rebels attacked Azzano Mercole and Sant'Angelo in the town of Spoleto, and forced to put the war Varano, reducing Beroide obedience in 1415.
Then they said to Francesco Sforza Beroide and rebelled again, slaughtering one of the priors of Spoleto and forcing the Cardinal Legate Vitelleschi to arrange for its destruction of its walls.
Pope Eugenius IV with a bubble of 1441 which forbade the castle was rebuilt in 1475 Beroide and only the walls were rebuilt and has since remained faithful to Beroide Spoleto and followed the story.
In the month of August takes place the festival of eel.

Heavenly sunset radiating the historical turbulent past of the dominant church, fortress. Brown tones create a warmth to accentuate the Romanesque architecture.

I really enjoyed my recent trip to Italy. The silhouettes here are amazing. Good sharpness and graphism. The backlighting of the sunset and the warm colour tones are superb. The simple colour scheme works well here. Tfs!

Beroide is made of shadows and light (golden ones), creating contrast with the church´s silhouette
A capture full of creativity

Immense capture with wonderful effect and your processing is so appealing, the warm tones of the evening is sensational along with strong well defined silhouettes as very important focal. I love your approach, a strong shot without doubt the sky is a stunner. All the elements seem to flows so well here. Congrats
